Cabin Holiday Rental
Into the forest I go... to lose my mind and find my soul. Incredible cabin nestled on a hill on 66 very private acres. H'Owl at the Moon Farm was completed in 2016. Relax and unwind under millions of stars and listen to the night sounds of frogs, crickets, owls, and sometimes coyotes. Close proximity to James River and tubing, UVA, and the Charlottesville Craft Brew and Wine Trail. You won't see any neighbors but you will see millions of stars and gain the serenity that can only come from unplugging from the world for a few days. There is WiFi but no cable. Cell service can be spotty depending on your provider. Verizon and Sprint seem to be the best. Feels remote yet only 20 minutes away from all that Charlottesville has to offer!

Cell service can be spotty depending on your provider. Verizon and Sprint seem to be the best. Feels remote yet only 20 minutes away from all that Charlottesville has to offer! Although easily accessible, the roads leading to the cabin and the driveway are all gravel. I have never had any problem with friends getting to the cabin in everything from a Prius to an RV. That said, don't wash and wax your car and expect it to stay that way :-). All Access, Including 66+ acres to hike and explore. I also have an agreement with my neighbors who lease 500 surrounding acres which you can hike and four-wheel in all months but mid September - early January (hunting season). Treat the house as if it were your own. Bring horses or four-wheelers but absolutely no shooting of any animals of any kind (in or out of season) without my expressed and prior approval. *** Please note: I do not accept reservations more than 6 months away. If you find you have an important need of a distant reservation (i.e. you are getting married in Scottsville and you are the bride), just send me a message and I will block the dates for you until we get within the six month range *** Also note that this listing is 'pets considered' please do not send a booking request without first sending an inquiry. I need to know the type and number of pets prior to booking. I don't charge a pet fee but am selective about the number and type of pets I will allow. *** Please do not split weekends unless booking a full week. If booking a Friday or a Saturday only, please inquire before sending a booking request. Since most renters book full weekends, 1/2 weekends usually lead to vacancies. I am more flexible about this during non-peak season. More

About the neighbourhood
I purchased this property because of its privacy. You will not see another neighbor from the cabin or property. Quiet days and quiet nights under the stars is what makes this place special. Come to relax, unwind, and reconnect with your inner self or someone else.
Getting around
Your car, your atv, your horse, or your own two feet :-). Seriously, I have owned the property for over five years and probably hike 8 miles a day whenever I am there and never tire of it. Sometimes just 'being there' is enough.
